Find some Schutzhund or other sport clubs. Ask there.

Hopefully I did this right, but here he is. He's so handsome!
I might be biased but he is gorgeous and looks like my Midnite before he filled out. What line is he from?

You did the right thing, do not spend time doubting the choice you made.

My eyes are practically swollen shut from crying but I'm feeling so much better now.

A million thanks to you all for your help, private messages, and words of encouragement. I have hope that this will have a positive outcome. I'll keep you all posted!
I'm so happy your received some help! I was feeling for you reading that you wanted a low drive family dog but got the extreme opposite. I thought I was having a bad day until I read this. You must feel an enormous sense of relief.

Thanks again everyone. I'm relieved but so sad too. This is not at all what I thought would happen when we brought him home. I am still grieving over the loss of my 13 year old golden/collie mix that passed on October 1st, and now I'm grieving 8 months later over my puppy. Just such a crappy situation!

Turns out we are bringing him home on Sunday night so that my husband can take him to this new kennel on Monday morning. I'm very nervous about him being back in our home but at least I'll be able to officially say good bye to him. We are planning to isolate him completely from the kids so that everyone stays safe. It will be a long emotional and nerve racking night!

I wanted to give you all an update. My husband brought our baby home on Sunday and our plan was to isolate him but there was absolutely no need to do that! He was the sweetest, most loving dog I've ever seen! We all just went nuts over him, loving him, playing with him, spoiling him with massive amounts of treats. He ended up jumping up in bed with us on Sunday night (which he has never done before) and slept in my husbands arms for a bit, and then mine before jumping down to sleep on his dog bed. He seemed so happy and so grateful to be home which made saying goodbye to him even more heartbreaking than we ever could have imagined. The kids and I cried pretty much all day yesterday.

So, my husband made the 3 1/2 hour road trip to the kennel in Indiana yesterday with our boy resting his head either in his lap, or on his arm for almost the entire trip. My husband decided that he was just not ready to give up on him quite yet. After a lengthly talk with the trainer who was taking him in, the trainer said that he has seen way worse than our boy and has been successful training dogs that are worse than him. He said he is very confident that he can get him to where he can be back in our home! He has been sending us updates and pictures, and will send us videos of the training to show us his progress. I can't even describe to you all how excited I am!!

I know he has a very, very long way to go, (and we will have a lot of work a head of us if he does come home) so I am trying very hard not to get my hopes up, but I was not at all expecting this kind of news! We haven't told the kids yet (which is killing me!) because I'm just paranoid that it won't happen and I don't want to break their hearts all over again. My husband is having a conference call tomorrow with this trainer to see what his thoughts are now that he'll have had him and have been working with him for a few days, to address our concerns, and to find out what his time frame is.

David Winners, if this works and we are able to bring our boy home, I will have to do something for you! Even if it's donating to your favorite charity in your name, I have to do something! I am so incredibly grateful to you!! When I think about what would have happened to him if I didn't post here….oh I just can't go there!

Oh, and the breeder still blames us, says we didn't socialize him enough and that she wouldn't place another puppy with us because we obviously don't know what we are doing. Real nice, huh?! We are so done with her!

Any way, on a happier note, I just had to update you all since you've all been so helpful and supportive. I'll let you know how things progress over the next few days/weeks.
